My BFF, Liz, had a birthday a couple weeks ago, and when it came time to figuring out a gift, I knew part of it had to be DIY. Liz has been really supportive of this blog, and always pushes me to use my creativity, so I knew she would love something made with my hands that came from my heart. I decided to make her some one of a kind coasters for her new apartment.
I found plain white tiles at Home Depot.I gathered together some scrapbook paper in complementery colors that I knew she would like.
I cut out four square pieces, each just a little smaller than the top of each tile. Next, I broke out my Mod Podge.I put a think layer on top of each tile.
Press the scrapbook paper on top.
Use 2-3 coats of Mod Podge, allowing each coat to dry before putting on the next layer.
To seal the coaster and make it completely waterproof, I sprayed each with clear sealer, found in the spray paint section of Home Depot.
Finally, I cut out square pieces of felt and glued it to the bottom of each coaster, so they wouldn’t scratch her table.
I tied a bow around them and placed them in her gift bag.
Happy birthday, Liz!
